If your car blows A LOT of white smoke out the tailpipe and it smells sweet, your coolant is probably seeping into the motor through a leak in the head gasket. Check the inside of your oil cap for whitish sludge - this indicates coolant in the oil and usually verifies a head gasket leak.

There is no one adverb for the word focus. You used the definite article, the, as if there is only one word that could be an adverb for that word. This is not true. Just about any adverb could describe focus, just maybe not that well.Examples:quickly focusslowly focusintently focusalmost focusedwell focusedpoorly focusedetc

If you drive with no antifreeze in your radiator you could ruin the motor. At a minimum you would probably blow a head gasket. The worse thing that can happen is that the motor will freeze up.

Yes, antifreeze can leak from a water pump gasket.

Antifreeze is composed of mainly ethylene glycol or propylene glycol, both of which are combustible. So yes, antifreeze IS combustible. However, neither of these compounds is very easily ignited. But although it is HIGHLY unlikely that antifreeze could start a fire, antifreeze could be dangerous if it actually gets hot enough to burn (such as in an ongoing structure fire).
